I used this pattern to make a nurse jacket for my niece. I hacked a tiny bit by adding pockect, because nurses need pockets(in pink leopard print)! Also cut into the back and add a fold to create more moving space. She loved the first one so much I made 2 more. The fabrics I used where a purple ponte and one out of grey linnen(didn't had to change a thing to the hacked pattern) This is a beautiful drafted pattern, easy to work with, clear instructions. Like the quality I've gotten used to from Cashmerette by now. I will never stop loving this company!
The pattern gets five stars, but not my final product, which isn't the pattern's fault! The pattern is beautifully drafted, the instructions are clear, and the sew-along makes it so easy. What I learned for my next Fuller: use the online size calculator --when I used it for the Washington Dress, it suggested a higher cup size and lower overall bust size, so the Washington bodice fit perfectly. Also, my muslin fabric was too different from my garment fabric (cheap heavy double knit vs. expensive sweater knit) so it was hard to predict the fit. For the cropped Fuller, I found the neckline a little low to wear with many shirts, and the sleeves a little full. I used a fairly firm sweater knit, and I think it would look better with a drapier sweater knit. But I'll be making more Fullers with these modifications in mind. These patterns are a joy to work with.
So far I’ve made two v-necks in a lightweight hacci sweater knit. Next up is a view B neckline on the longer view A length in a little heavier knit. Cashmerette patterns are so well drafted, with excellent directions. And with a me-made, it’s easy to customize little things like shortening sleeves so they don’t hang to my knuckles. If you’re looking for a basic cardigan to dress up your separates, this is a great choice.
I am very new to PDF patterns from Independent designer companies (like about 3 monrhs) . As I am a bit curvy I have always had a love hate relationship with all patterns...
I tried this and the fit is great.....I made ZERO changes. I was so impressed I got 4 more patterns and can honestly say Cashmerette know their craft. Try it you will not be disappointed as I have made 5 already.....
Needs pockets, dart combined with raglan sleeve just not attractive, I made the cardigan but it ended in the good will pile bacause the raglan sleeve and dart combo just did not suit me.
